Spring harvest

It is a feeling of great satiation to grow your own food and harvesting fresh produce which is generally free from chemicals .

                                                             Cabbage grown from seeds

Cauliflower grown from scratch

There is nothing like digging fresh produce                                                                                           


Radish harvest

Tomatoes and lemons for Salads and soups

Green Peas ,Labalab beans and Chickpeas harvest

Bitter gourd 

A squab reached my balcony                                                                                                                     

Nothing like fresh smell of Rose                                                                                             

And Harvested last Guava since it is going to be summer now                                                            

It looks like lot of confusion and chaos is going on in sky too

Amaryllis lily season

Its always rewarding when some of the flowering bulbs withstand worse of weather conditions mainly extreme hot weather throughout the year and still bring amazing blooms without requiring much  care unlike other flowering bulbs.
Amaryllis lily is one well adapted plant to the weather of  our region.
